The 2020 Vendor Applications are now available! Please be sure to read the policies attached to your application carefully, as many new policies have been implemented for this year's festival, including a new Sustainability Policy.
NORTH CAROLINA SALES TAX ID NUMBER
Vendors from the expanded Appalachian area are encouraged to apply and participate in our festival. The State of North Carolina requires that all festival vendors obtain an North Carolina Sales Tax Number and display it in their booth on the day of the festival. You can obtain a free North Carolina Sales Tax Number online by visiting the North Carolina Department of Revenue Website. If you already have a North Carolina Sales Tax Identification Number, there is no need to re-apply.
ARTS AND CRAFTS VENDORS
All Arts and Crafts vendors must be engaged in selling their arts and crafts that are handmade and/or locally produced. No retailers or independent consultants selling non-handmade products will be accepted to the festival. If you are a local business and wish to participate in the festival, please visit our Sponsors page. Please click below to review the 2020 Application and Policies.
Fees: Applications received prior to February 15: $90 Applications received between February 16 and March 15: $100
March 15, 2020 is the deadline for vendor applications.
Vendors selling food items which require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Food Vendor Application. Others selling specialized food products such as popcorn, shaved ice, ice cream, or similar items which do not require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Artisan and Crafters Vendor Application. Please click below to download the Food Vendor Application and Policies for 2020. Please pay close attention to the new Sustainability policy, as some products, such as styrofoam, will not be permitted at this year's festival.
If your booth does not require electricity to operate, please indicate that a non-electric booth space is acceptable, as there are limited booth spaces with access to electricity.
